Kajan
Johnson
will be making a quick turnaround as he prepares to
take on Rustam
Khabilov
at
UFC Moscow
in September after submitting to an armbar by
Islam
Makhachev
on July 28, according to a report by MMASucka.

Johnson (23-13-1) was originally scheduled to fight Khabilov back
in March, but an injury forced the Dagestani out of the bout at the
last minute. Johnson went on to defeat Stevie Ray
instead, who filled in on short notice.

Prior to the submission loss to Makhachev, “Ragin’” Kajan was on an
impressive four-fight winning streak, punctuated by a massive
knockout victory over Adriano
Martins
last year.

Meanwhile, Khabilov (22-3) has won five fights in a row himself,
but hasn’t fought since September 2017, making the fight with
Johnson almost a year to the day since his last fight.

UFC Moscow will take place on Sept. 15 and will be the promotion’s
first event on Russian soil. The card will be headlined by a
heavyweight clash between Mark Hunt and
Aleksei Oleinik.
